Accurately calculating the flexibility of a patient undergoing physical therapy is a difficult task and results in inconsistent measurements. Flexibility and ability to do certain tasks are parameters used to determine the patient's progress in therapy and training. To achieve a consistent and accurate reading on ones’ flexibility, specifically for a patient's torso, computer vision techniques have been combined with hardware to create a user-friendly application and product for the patients and physical therapists to interact with. Below is one of my project partners Dan testing out the angle calculations.
